    The obvious question is there a duplicate? In your new company file,
    are there any accounts set up for the chart of accounts list? If there
    are delete them, then try the import again.

    Open the IIF file in Excel, and check the account numbers. I bet you will
    find a duplicate number somehow. You can edit the file and save it in a tab
    delimited form, with an IIF extension and you should be fine.
